The linear attenuation coefficients of different marble samples (Perlato Beige, Regal Beige and Crema Siva Beige) produced in Amasya were measured. The measurements have been performed at the photon energies of 511, 835 and 1274 keV which were obtained using 22Na and 54Mn sources. The measurements have been performed using a gamma spectrometer which contains 3"×3" NaI(Tl) detector connected to 16384 channel Multi-Channel-Analyser (MCA).
